In brief: You

You have more options than traditional surgery or liposuction to lose fat and sculpt your body.
These new fda-approved lasers, radiofrequency & cooling technology devices offer safer alternatives to traditional surgery, minimal to no recovery time, with a lot less cost, essentially no risk for infection or scarring after the procedure. Some of these non-invasive fat removal procedures let you lose unwanted inches from the hips, waist, and/or thighs. We can target specific areas like love handles, buttocks, thighs or muffin tops. You will see noticeable results in 8 to 12 weeks or sooner. When you are ready for non-invasive fat removal procedure, choose a facility which has multiple devices so it is possible to match your situation with a correct device and customize a program for you. Devices include coolsculpting, zerona, liposonix, thermage and bella contour for non-invasive and liposuction and lasers for invasive more dramatic and expensive results. Also choose a facility with established track record of successfully treating patients with these devices. Only allow a board-certified dermatologist or physician assistant to treat you.

In brief: Be careful

There are many noninvasive lasers that claim to remove fat.
Review these claims carefully. Most of the noninvasive treatments do not live up to their claims or perhaps result in only temporary fat reduction at best. Laser liposuction is the permanent removal of fat under the skin and is a surgical procedure. The laser melts the fat and the cannula suctions out the fat.

In brief: Laser liposuction

Laser liposuction is the permanent removal of fat under the skin.
The laser melts the fat and the cannula suctions out the fat. The laser can then tighten the skin. The other noninvasive forms of fat reduction are temporary.
